LITTER IS A SHORE THING!
VOLUNTEERS have been busy with their bin bags this week as they make
local area look spick and span. The area involved is on the Mersey
Way national footpath route, between Dungeon Point and Oglet Lane
where it joins the beach, and includes areas above and below the
cliffs. It a picturesque area with a magnificent view across the
Mersey Estuary. More than a hundred people have helped and will
stand back and admire their efforts tomorrow at the final session.
The Liverpool Culture Company's Creative Communities initiative has
helped fund the event. Creative Environment manager, Sarah Vasey,
said:- "The event is right on the border of Liverpool and
Halton, so the 2 areas have been working together and we're hoping
for twice as many volunteers as normal! Oglet Shore should be a much
nicer place to be once we've finished our big tidy-up."
Liverpool city council's Neighbourhood Officer Arthur Savage has
rolled up his sleeves to help. He said:- "Unfortunately this
area's relative remoteness on the edge of a large settlement makes
it a favourite location for fly tipping which blights the area. It
is this problem that we hope to address."
Volunteers from the Merseyfest event in Sefton Park will be taking
part. The Christian community has got together in Liverpool to
provide their time for free to help within the community. Also
involved are the South Liverpool Neighbourhood Management Team and
Halton Borough Council.
